France - Champagne - Dammery
Managed by independent winegrowers, the Champagne House Caillez Lemaire is situated in Damery, on the right bank of the Marne river, 7 km downstream from Epernay. It has obtained a High Environmental Quality certification and produces cuvées with strong personality.
From wine-growing to wine-making, Virginie and Laurent pay particular attention to each stage of development of their Champagnes' personality:
- Development of grass covers and tilling in the vineyards.
- No filtration, which favours winemaking on fine lees.
- Fermentation and aging of the wines at low temperatures.
For over 20 years, our passion for barrel aging has grown, as this process reveals the best expression of our wines!
For this reason, we vinify one third of our Champagne cuvées in barrels (225 and 300 l).
We also age our Ratafia and Spirits (Fine and Marc) in barrels, using the Solera technique.
